When I want to change icons, I only have the 5 original icons I can change
to. I tried to open "moricons" but it was a .dll file and it sends a
message that there is no association and no folders attached. How do I make
it open? How do I download and use new icons?

More about : icons

Don't try to open moricons.dll directly, but browse to it and
open it from the change icons dialog box.

Thank you. That was very helpful, but very limited. Where are the icons that
there used to be with a telephone, etc? And how do I download new icons from
the web?

Are you replying to me? If so, you're welcome, but please quote
the message you're replying to (as I did above) so we can
understand.

Do a google search for icon files on the web (there are *many*)
and download the ones you like just as you would any other files.
Create a new folder, and call it something like \icons. To use
one of these, browse to the \icons folder in the change icon
dialog box and choose it.

Most good ones are in shell32.dll. You can get an idea of where to look in XP from this 98 page.

Cool! I'll try it out. Everybody's been so helpful. There's a lot of stuff
I still need to learn.
